What Does Family Mean to Me?

I am an Air Force brat and grew up in a few places around the world always with somewhat transient friend groups. I think this taught me to cherish the kindred spirits I found along the way, whether related by blood like my mother who I can count on for anything, or related by bond like my friends who have seen me through scary times. To me, family are the people you hold in your hearts even when you haven’t seen or spoken with them for a little bit. They are the network that keeps you grounded in your values, folks to celebrate life’s joys with and commiserate with in the disappointing or painful times.

My Favorite HAPPILY EVER AFTER DIVORCE ® Story

My parents divorced when I was young enough to feel the hurt of it, but old enough to see the reasons. They just weren’t compatible in many ways and hadn’t been for years. I am so grateful to them for having taken that step because I was able to watch them grow and mature into new relationships that were much healthier for each of them and much healthier examples for me to follow as an adult. I’ve been at this work for about a decade at this point and I’ve helped hundreds of people get to the other side of their unhappy marriages. I still get emails and thank you cards from clients I helped long ago, updating me on their progress, their new careers and families, and their new outlook on life. I find it very rewarding. Divorce can be scary, but life is short and oftentimes painful. I believe we all deserve to be as happy as we can with the time we have.

WHAT IS MY FAMILY STRUCTURE LIKE?

My immediate family consists of my partner of almost 20 years and our five-pound Yorkshire Terrier, Charlie aka Lucifer aka Evil Monster. We have a great circle of close friends we consider family as well, and recently relocated to Georgia from the Bay Area, so we are excited to expand that circle even more.
